Fundamental Marketing Points for Your Heart-Centered Business

It’s no secret that I love certifying students in the art and science of hand analysis!

My sixth year teaching the hand analysis certification program is quickly coming to completion. By September 6th the world will have six new certified hand analysts reaching around the globe from Australia to Switzerland and Germany, and from sea to sea in the United States.

An applauded benefit for this year’s certification students was the 10 hours chock-full of business development and crucial marketing worksheets for immediate professional success.
 
One student said:
 
“What I found most beneficial was that doing the exercises “forced” me to really clarify the traits that I bring into the business and what my values are and how I would like them to show up in my marketing materials.  Before, I had some general and vague ideas but the class exercises really got me to organize my thinking.” – Marcella Theeman, 2016 Certified Hand Analyst 

Inspiring people to use the personalized road map inscribed in their hands to live a purposeful life is truly gratifying. It’s even better the longer we maintain stamina, commitment and enthusiasm. However, burn out is practically guaranteed without proven strategies to market our businesses as effectively as possible.

I created the Marketing and Business Breakthrough training module through years of growth, observation, lessons learned and with the help of my marketing coach. It’s a fact – marketing and business strategies are crucial to finding lasting joy in operating a heart-centered business.

I want to make it as quick and simple as possible for you while staying aligned with your authentic self!

YOUR business and YOUR marketing will not be effective if it’s based on any cookie cutter formula.

Fundamental marketing mastery must be based on YOUR…
 
– Special interest and focus on what matters most
– Personal values (as Marcella said)
– Vision and what you stand for no matter what
– Signature and influencing branding archetypes 
– Unique gifts and talents
– Ideal clients and how you can best serve them

This topic can be overwhelming for anyone especially highly creative healers so I bring forward proven strategies step-by-step so that you can immediately apply them as you grow your business.

Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision,” said Peter Drucker.

This Level 3 Certification Program aims for excellence.  We’ll cover nearly 200 different markings in the hands so you are guaranteed to increase your database and skillfully apply what you learn each week. Additional bonus markings always find a way of sneaking into our live lessons, too.

While seats last, students already certified in hand analysis by any qualified teacher are welcome to apply as a refresher and to stay tuned in each week at 1/3 tuition. International students are welcome with two options for joining LIVE depending on your time zone.

If you want to know more please join me for either a 60 minute group information webinar on Wednesday, August 31st from 4:00 – 5:00pmPT or a 15 minute private discovery session.

Mantra for a Weak Life Line

Have you looked at your own or other people’s Life Lines to see what condition they are in? Maybe you have seen one or two broken or weaken Life Lines along with a few strong and robust ones, too.

It’s important to understand that every marking in the hand can have a positive and a negative possibility in it’s interpretation. Our minds do the same thing. We can think in a positive or negative way. It’s all about perspective.

All negative possibilities offer shadow wisdom. Shadows are created by light. We grow stronger as we open to our weaknesses and shine the light of awareness on them. If you decide to, you can learn to use your weaknesses, bring them to the light, and bloom into your most amazing life.

In my book, Your Life Is In Your Hands, you’ll find a “mantra” associated with most of the markings described in the book. I use the word “mantra” to imply the integration of the positive and negative interpretations of these markings into powerful affirmations. These mantras are designed and intended to uplift you into realizing your highest potential.

Weak (short, frayed, scattered, or broken) Life Lines Key Words: Restlessness, up rootedness, insistence, burnout

Weak Life Line Positive: I’m on heightened alert, attentive to getting many things accomplished, with opportunities to renew and rebuild

Weak Life Line Negative: I’m susceptible to burn out when I do too much (too much is defined by you, not the world); feeling out of balance and depleted.

Mantra: With ease, I equalize work, play and rest. I breathe in the nature of life.

You may want to write this mantra on a sticky-note and post it where you’ll see it frequently. It could transform your world!

What Broken Life Lines Represent

A broken Life Line can indicate a very difficult circumstance usually involving a serious physical situation. Examples clients have told me about include an injury such as a head trauma, a life-changing event such as divorce, moving to another state, unexpectedly changing colleges, abruptly ending a sports career because of knee surgery, or death in the family. Events associated with a broken Life Line can be seen in a positive or negative way, but either way a broken Life Line probably represents a needed wake-up call. For example, one woman with a break in her Life Line had very destructive behaviors, such that her husband divorced her and took custody of their children. She saw the separation in a negative way, but the divorce helped her to realize that she would benefit by making positive changes for healthier behaviors. This woman suffered the physical change of the unwanted divorce at the age of the break on her Life Line.

In my observations and in the life histories of my clients, issues of physical security correlate to Life Lines at the approximate ages shown in the Figure below.

Life Line Time Line AAHA

Approximate time line on the Life Line (above)

Important note: The hand analysis I practice is not predictive. If you see a broken Life Line do not assume any of the above examples my clients have told me about will actually occur in someone else’s life in the future based on this approximate time line. Why? Because a break will represent something different in every person’s life, and life circumstances and lines in the hand can change. Making a prediction about the future is simply inappropriate.  It is said, ‘Only Heaven knows.”

Figure below shows the hand of a man who told me of a life-threatening event that occurred to him when he was a child. Notice the break in his Life Line between the age of five and ten.

Broken Life Line AAHA

At age 6 he was thrown into a river along with his brother who was 8. At 6 he was terrified as he was thrashed along the current until he reached the edge of the river. He hid under the brush to hide from the older brothers who had chucked him into the river because they were watching for him along the riverbank.

Today this man is a great swimmer. In his adult life he has played key roles in planning for and monitoring the safety of people at large events, as well as providing security for his own children. His broken Life Line, even between age 5-10 on the time line, reveals his continual need for safety and security.

A short or weak Life Line represents a shorter than average anchor line to the earth. When the tether to the earth is weak, there is an inclination to “hover above” the world, or to feel lost at sea. Oftentimes there was a requirement early in life to take on so much responsibility that time for play had to be sacrificed. One client with a short Life Line told me how survival issues show up for him.

He explained, “Before I know it, I’m rationalizing starting the day earlier and earlier and ending later and later. I’m working fourteen-hour days as an average. There is a constant and never-ending continuation of tasks leading to my insanity.”

When I asked what has helped him, he said, “I’ve learned to see my big jobs as smaller jobs. I break large chunks of responsibility and work into smaller chunks. I can breathe easier as I settle down with bite-sized jobs.”

Breaking tasks into manageable portions is a healthy strategy for addressing the overwhelming frenzy that can gradually consume a person with a short or broken Life Line. If you have this type of Life Line remember to b r e a t h e. In this spirit, my friend William Sullivan wisely said, “when looking at building many a mile of fence, it’s best to take it one post at a time.”

Watch for my next article with key words, weak Life Line in the positive and negative, and a mantra to inspire internal balance.

Five Additional Variables for Vocational Hand Analysis – Part III

Five additional variables to look for in the hands when doing a vocational analysis are:

1. The Finger Zones are essential features because the size, length, width and girth give a striking clue as to additional emphasis regarding the owner’s ideal niche. Typically, one of the 12 finger zones, or sections, is most eye-catching. The most noticeable finger section directs me to inquire with the owner about his or her skill or desire in the related area. Below are high-level descriptions related to each of the finger zones.

Index/Jupiter Middle/Saturn Ring/Apollo Pinkie/Mercury
Upper Zone Visionary Wisdom Studies Mental arts Brainstorming
Middle Zone Ambition Security Design Negotiations
Lower Zone Territory Foundations Display Sex energy

As you know, desires are not always pursued for a variety of reasons. And skills are not always developed. However, the most-visible zone must be considered if the owner wishes to find fulfillment.

2.  Thumbs are one of the most important considerations when determining if working for others or the self would be favorable. As an example, Oprah’s thumbs span widely from her palm. This large area between her hand and the tip of her thumb shows desire for a wide range of influence. The wider the angle between hand and thumb tip, the bigger the territory the owner must have to manage. Likewise, the closer the thumb rests to the hand, the less responsibilities he or she wishes to administer. He or she would do better, and most likely prefer, to be employed for someone else, leaving work at the same time each day.

3.  The length and quality of the Fate Line (vertical line climbing from the bottom of the hand up toward the middle finger) reveals drive toward values, which in turn equate to money. A long, noticeable vertical line rising toward the middle finger shows a person with their foot on the gas and hands on the steering wheel with a clear plan, direction and determination.

4.  The Life Line shows the level of vitality available to the owner. Deep, long and curving Life Lines indicate stamina, recuperation skills and physical balance. Life Lines that are short or frayed show a scattering of energy; the anchor typically keeping a buoyant ship in place is untethered.

5.  A variety of other markings in the hands would also be considered. There are too many to mention here.

Keep in mind, no one indicator in the hand will uncover the vocational solution. The ingredients must be artistically combined to expose the inner masterpiece waiting to shine.

To summarize, the first component in the hand to assess for vocational selection is the hand. So far we considered the following variables (shape, lines and markings):

– Hand Shape archetype

– Dominant finger

– Strongest Mount

– Heart Lines

– Gift Markings

– Finger Zones

– Thumbs

– Fate Lines

– Life Lines

– Other Markings

How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.

Interview with Caroline Douglas

Caroline Douglas
Caroline Douglas, AAHA CHA

With great pleasure, I introduce you to Artist and Hand Analyst, Caroline Douglas.

When and how did you start reading hands?

After I had mine read by Baeth Davis in 2008, I thought what a profound healing tool. So I began studying it and taking classes, eventually being Certified with you Kay.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

I am not focusing on any one thing, but I do seem to attract really creative people. I also see a lot of gift markings…. maybe since I have so many too :o)

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

I love how validating it is for people, how they often feel seen for the first time in a real way. Also, it is a great way for me to use my gifts of insight and healing and it is a great connector in a profound way.

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

Well yes, my life lessons… I have several, but the one that trumps them all is left Saturn- guilt and unworthiness. So especially in the beginning of reading hands, I would doubt myself and what I was seeing. But after expressing what I saw, it got easier and I had more certainty when people were so touched by it.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?

Good question! My life purpose of Public Impact in the Healing Arts is always pushing me to be sharing my story of how I healed myself after a head injury through art and to be creative in the spotlight. My lessons are incompletion, powerlessness and unworthiness. They contribute to me holding back and preferring to hide through self-doubt. Two books come to mind… Art and Fear (which describes in detail all the resistances we can come up with to avoid creating) and Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, which is the story of my life!

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

I did a couple reading where one had a Simian. I fell into confusion while trying to validate both people. I felt frustrated that the reading was not more help for them. Basically I couldn’t heal their relationship. It was only later that I realized that I was doing the best I could and that I need to be clear about boundaries and setting an intention.  I did another couple’s reading right after that so I could get over that fear. And that one was great! And who’s to say the first one was not great, too, just that it stirred things up. Sometimes that is what is needed for healing to happen.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?

Trust yourself and practice a lot! It will be very healing for you, too.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?

I want to get caught up with all the readings I need to do!
